Demetrious Johnson broke leg in 2nd round of bout with Torres

Early in the second round of his recent UFC 130 fight with Miguel Torres, Demetrious Johnson threw a hard kick that was checked by his opponent.

He instantly knew something was wrong but persevered and ultimately got a close decision victory.

But after returning to his day job and watching his limb massively swell, he went to the doctor earlier this week and got the bad news: It's broken.

"Yeah, the leg is broken," the ever-upbeat Johnson today told MMAjunkie.com (www.mmajunkie.com). "The fibula bone is completely fractured.

"Once I kicked him and he checked it, I stepped back and heard crunch, crunch, crunch. I figured it might be broke."

Johnson first announced the confirmed diagnosis via his Twitter and Facebook accounts. "Mighty Mouse" accompanied it with an X-ray and a humorous photograph of him riding a motorized scooter.

 Reminds me of GSP saying "i pulled my groin" and his corner saying "go out and hit him with it"

He also came back after round 2 and said his leg hurt, and Hume said "Forget about that."

haven't seen the x-ray but I'm assuming it was a hairline which isn't really that bad for the first hour. Just sayin'

Wow, pretty tough guy. Lucky (in a way) fracture the fibula as well, or we would have had one of those floppy leg highlights we see every now and then.

+1. It's not like he had a broken leg when the fight started.
